CITTP: Computerized Individual Trainer for Team Performance, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

CITTP: Computerized Individual Trainer for Team Performance, Phase I
CITTP provides an intelligent tutor system (ITS) framework for individuals to rehearsing their team tasks using computer based high-fidelity simulations. CITTP is used as a complement and a cost effective means to make join team integration more effective. CITTP concentrates in defining three key elements that a team ITS must have: (i) authoring tools to define training scenarios; (ii) intelligent simulated entities that play team members roles in these scenarios; and (iii) natural language understanding capabilities that allow simulated team members to react intelligently to the trainee communications. CITTP will allow instructors to create operational scenarios and to customize methods to automatically evaluate trainee decisions. CITTP will monitor student's actions in order to provide feedback identifying the concepts where the student has demonstrated either a satisfactory proficiency or a need for remediation. CITTP will also formulate a remedial course of instruction tailored to the student needs. In phase I we will identify the modeling techniques and the natural language capabilities needed to create effective intelligent simulated team members. We will also develop a limited prototype of CITTP to demonstrate its feasibility and effectiveness. In phase II we will deploy CITTP for the NASA domain and team identified during phase I. More »
